How exactly is this false marketing? I have no interest in having a rosh discussion, but. Obviously a casino are in no way obliged to give the same wagering requirements and rules on all bonuses and to all players.
All logic dictates that many VIP players for example will be offered higher betting limits.
Tell that to the inexperienced players, that are watching these streams..
OP mentioned Rosh and he is just an example..
I know and many people here know we do not get the same WR or bonus t&c's but many do not know this..
I think its not even legal, but who could start a over the border legal case to fight his/her rights in this case... Its impossible
I wonder at what point did we just start to accept this type of behaviour from casinos, to the extend that other players are supporting it and ruling against the player? The only reason a rule like this exists is to stop bonus abusers, when a player is not purposely abusing a bonus, but just playing, it's unethical for a casino to hide behind the rule to confiscate the money from a player. It's not because you play part of your session at higher bets that you are automatically abusing a bonus, and for a casino to just confiscate winnings based on that, I consider that fraud or incompetence.
Any reputable casino would clear the player in cases like this, so avoid casinos like N1 in the future.
You’re missing the point. I didnt loose and ask for a refund. I bought the fridge with a discount but didn’t read the T&C stating it was a bag of ice instead of the pretty fridge I saw in the picture that lured me in buying in the first place."Let me try out this casino for 14 days and see if I like it. If not I'll just get a refund like I did with my fridge"
Exactly - it would be a complete pain in the arse and they know this and are banking on it.
There was a time until recently when it was considered 'fact' that online casinos could take the utter piss with their T&C's and the customers had to suck it up. For those fortunate to gamble at UKGC licensed casinos, the regulator called in the CMA who sided with the consumer and took a number of enforcement actions which fundamentally changed the game to the players benefit.
The following page provides some long commentary on the matter:-
In regards to your specific problem the following section is an interesting read:-
(4) Fairness and transparency of play restrictions
In addition to our general concern that significant conditions are not adequately communicated to consumers, we are also concerned about the fairness and transparency of specific terms which purport to set out restrictions on particular types of gameplay. Some of the more specific examples of such terms seek to prevent consumers from placing wagers above a certain maximum bet size. However, more nebulous and uncertain terms talk more broadly about consumers not engaging in ‘low risk betting strategies’ or otherwise behaving in a manner which the operator considers to amount to an ‘abuse’ of the promotional terms. In circumstances where there is nothing to stop consumers inadvertently engaging in such behaviours, and operators may exercise their discretion with serious consequences for the consumer (including forfeiting winnings and unspent deposit funds) the CMA considers such terms are not fair or transparent.
The underlying principles
The CMA has a particular concern where such terms could be used to apply sanctions to consumers’ own deposited funds, as appears commonly to be the case in the promotions we have seen. Such promotional terms operate to prohibit and sanction play that would otherwise be permitted and legitimate when the consumer plays outside the promotion, including placing bets above a particular threshold.
Whilst there is no overarching ‘right to bet’, once an operator accepts a bet there is a binding contract and the winnings constitute an enforceable debt. A term that seeks to legally reserve an operator’s position to avoid liability under such bets on the basis of play restrictions would cause a significant imbalance by departing from the legal position that would otherwise apply.
Unfortunately, those comments are highly qualified opinions which ultimately have to be tested in a court of law. My interpretation is that by allowing you to place that bet they legally accepted your bet. My guess is that if this was tested in a UK court of law the confiscation of funds may not be lawful. But back to your point - who wants to go through that process?
And for those who make daft claims such as "it's in black and white in the T&CS" that is simply not the case in UK law. If they had a clause which stated you had to give them a kidney if you bet more than £5 do you think they could legally enforce it? Of course not. Thankfully we have good consumer protection laws in the UK so they can write what they like in those T&Cs......as long as they are fair and legal.
Sadly, the biggest heist the online casinos managed to pull in this regard was convincing everyone it was entirely legal and you end up with a situation where even people who are players and not even affiliates do the casinos bidding on their behalf much like a lot of responses to this thread.
I can honestly say that if the outcome of this for you is that you never play at an online casino again it will definitely work out better for you in the long run.
All the best.
First, click on the T&C link and see what the max bet size is + other requirements (like wagering), then make a deposit if you wish to claim the bonus. I always translate "T&Cs apply" as "Lees de Regels & Voorwaarden".
the link refers to this wall of text:You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.
As a new player I was not aware I’m supposed to look for max bet amount rules, assuming its technically limited in 2019.
Honestly, over 90% of people never read those and its being taken advantage of, which is the point I’m trying to make.
unless, ive played there or bonus free I ALWAYS check with live chat, ask for a transcript or screenshotThat is not a valid argument Meph. When claiming a bonus, players should always make sure that they know the applicable terms, it is the responsibility of the player. Also, the add mentions contacting Live Chat if you have any questions. I sometimes double-check with a CSR to be safe.
some good comedy clauses in that link
"Money deposited in casino must be used for gaming activity. Due to this, all deposits need to be wagered at least 1 time. If a player is suspected of money laundering or other fraudulent actions, the casino has the right to request that the deposits need to be wagered at least 3 times.
how about not accepting the deposit
That is not a valid argument Meph. When claiming a bonus, players should always make sure that they know the applicable terms, it is the responsibility of the player. Also, the add mentions contacting Live Chat if you have any questions. I sometimes double-check with a CSR to be safe.
Its not the responsibility of livechat to go through every single term and condition of the bonus, you have to accept that you are responsible for checking the t's & c's, and if you were to lazy to do that you can't expect any other outcome.I did, I spoke to Felix about the bonus and how it works. He only mentioned thd 50x wager and the amount I needed to play after checking my stats. The max bet limit was not mentioned.
